However, if you try to use fonts other than the "system" fonts, (a font which is preloaded onto a computer) you risk ruining the design of your website.
If you use a font that is not installed on your website visitors computer they will see the text in a substitute font which may not look good on their screen.
For example, the words Palatino and Comic Sans MS, appear in the indicated font if using a computer which has those fonts loaded, but will appear as the default Times New Roman unless the default has been changed.
